In the world of books, the characters can be just as important – if not more so? – than the creator. Therefore, I’m welcoming characters to the blog to introduce themselves, spill the beans about their makers and tell us what lies ahead…
Today I’m welcoming Honorio Fuentes – from Sabrina Sumsion’s title Aliens Aren’t Real – to the blog
Welcome! Please introduce yourself…
On my home planet we are called by our frequency and my designation is 22zb. My name is Honorio Fuentes on earth. We’re stuck on this rock for the time being so call me Honorio. I grew up living a normal life with my arrangement made at birth with 24ig -you would know her as Yumi -and planned to take command of a squadron of protectors when I hit my second phase of life. Well, now I’m stuck here dealing with unpredictable humans and trying to control my band of misfits.
Spill the beans…
The creator/character relationship could be described as a give and take one. Who is the taker and who is the giver in your relationship?
I provide all the necessary information for Ms. Sumsion. I can’t say that she always portrays my character objectively but the essence of the story is accurate.
And, if your creator could spend the royalties on a treat, what would it be?
Assuming the tables were turned and you became the author, what story would you cast your creator turned character in?
She would be an erratic, well-meaning secondary character. I believe she would fit well as a quirky mom with an inexplicable crafting obsession.
Tell us something about your creator that they’re unlikely to share themselves?
She’s too emotional. When she wrote the chapter about 19bd -known as Malika on earth -she cried. Real tears dripped down her cheeks. She needs to control her connection to others.
Tell us one of your bad habits
N/A -a good soldier gets rid of all habits except those that benefit society.
Tell us one of your creator’s bad habits
Chewing her nails.
If you lived in the same world as your creator, would you be likely to move in the same circles?
No. She does not have strong military links and therefore it is unlikely that we would cross paths.
Now here’s a quickfire comparison round: your favourites and hers…
Honorio: I discovered an affinity to Root Beer. Other than that I have no favorites beyond what my supervisors inform me that I have.
Sabrina: Too many to count. She loves flavorful foods -especially homemade bread. She love to be anywhere her family is and hopes that place is warm. Her favorite film is Princess Bride. She has too many favorite books to list but is a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson.
And now the moment of truth: review Sabrina’s book
Sabrina Sumsion delivers an accurate account of the happenings in Omaha, NE. Her facts, though embellished to suit her liking, convey the main theme of our actions. I think she added some emotions that did not exist on Jasmine’s part but that is for Jasmine to refute.
Will we see you again? Any last words?
If Sabrina persists is writing the sequel, yes. Thank you for your time and attention in this interview.
